Untitled, as always | Poll Results

I don't like to title my photos, unless it's a simple description like the name of the place or the item in the photo. To me a photo title is suspiciously similar to the foreword of a book; it really only exists because the author wants to tell you how to read the book. The other reason is that the only clever titles I can ever come up with are cynical ones like "Self Indulgence" or "Cliché." (See?)

[First: Tri-X @ EI 320, Rodinal 1:50, Yashica 12. Second: Fomapan 100 @ EI 80, Rodinal 1:100 (50 min stand), Yashica 12.]

****************************************

The poll results showed that around half of you (47%) don't mind seeing the occasional unrelated post, like this one. For the 35% of you who would like me to relate these posts back to tea somehow: I'll try to do that most of the time. For the 17% who don't like these posts at all and are now reading this: that wasn't so bad, was it? :)

Stunning... I admire your beautiful photography so much (even when there's no tea, ha!)

I like the second one. It's pretty, the shape of the flower and the vase.

Hi Brent, your photos are simply great! Some of them in particular (like the second one: the flower) are really strong. Well, I guess their connection with tea is sensibility. It's fine, as far as I'm concerned. Always pleased to see them in your blog. Thanks for sharing them by the way!
